Is there an easy way to hide my ip address and encrypt data at the same time?
I find that even I use anonymous proxy server, my neighbors can still figure out what website I have visited !!!
The problem is that the connection between my computer and the proxy server is not anonymous and not secure.
Is there an easy (and free) solution ?
Thanks.

First some questions:

How do you know that your neighbors know what websites you have visited?

Are you aware of whether they know about other computer habits or information of yours?

What kind of internet connection do you have? Wireless, cable, satelite, dial-up etc.

What is your operating system?

What security programs do you have installed and running and are they up to date?

I connect to Internet through Ethernet.
One of my partner uses Windows XP build-in Internet sharing function to share the Internet to all of us.
So, all my connections must route to his computer before go to the Internet.
I don't know why he can tell what URL I have visited.
May be his computer has some program to record all outgoing traffic ?

I use this,
http://www.privacyconnector.com
It encrypts all your outgoing traffic and make you surf Internet anonymously using VPN
I think this can solve your problem, however, their connection speed is not fast...
And make sure your computer doesn't have any key logger and spyware.
